But 90 Minutes can report that Newcastle have asked about a possible transfer. The 23-year-old midfielder has also attracted attention in other major markets, including Celtic and several Major League Soccer sides.
90min understands that even if MLS executives would love to see the defender play at home, Carter-Vickers is still determined to stay in Europe to continue his development and is not convinced that a return to his homeland would be the right decision.

Carter-Vickers has played for several English sides and has recently received a successful season loan with Championship side AFC Bournemouth. He has also completed loans with Stoke City, Swansea City, Bolton Wanderers, Luton Town and Sheffield United with varying degrees of success.
Despite a lot of experience at the championship level, Carter-Vickers has not yet played in the Premier League. He has made 113 appearances in the second tier while on loan, as well as four times in cup competitions for Spurs.
He grew up in England but spent the summers with his father in America and joined the Tottenham Academy at the age of 11. He worked his way through the system before making his debut under Mauricio Pochettino in 2016 in a League Cup victory over Gillingham. Carter-Vickers has also appeared in match day teams in the Champions League.
The defender has made eight appearances for the US men’s national team and hopes to be part of the World Cup squad next year. Becoming a regular in any European first team would drive him to battle to participate in the upcoming USMNT list.
